Degree: Nursing

Online education - so no transportation/campus response. Great school!

Degree: Marriage & Family Therapy
Graduation Year: 2017

The pros are the flexibility of being able to work full-time while take classes that aid in my professional career. While some information can be confusing regarding state qualifications for licensure, the academic and faculty advisors are helpful and resourceful.

Capella provides an excellent education. The school's reputation is improving making the degree more valuable. The faculty is outstanding!

Degree: Counseling
Graduation Year: 2017

The best part of my graduate program is that I can take classes online allowing me to continue with my busy life. The cons I guess is that online classes are missing the classroom environment. Overall though I am very happy with my experience at Capella, they do everything they can to bridge that gap.

Degree: Counseling
Graduation Year: 2017

Completing coursework online can sometimes hinder the interaction of other students. However, Capella has incorporated nationwide meetings for students to participate in during the completion of the program.

Degree: Psychology
Graduation Year: 2017

Capella's program in clinical psychology is an intense one, meant to qualify students for licensure and practice in several different jurisdictions. Staff is highly qualified and generally committed to student success. The major drawback to this institution's offering is the relatively high cost of attendance and lingering prejudice against distance (online) and some blended programs, even excellent programs like Capella's.

it is an online program that allows me to work during the day and school when I have the time. I also was thrilled to learn they do not charge out of state fees!

Degree: Public Administration

Everything about the graduate program is good so far. My professor responds to me in a timing manner. I can email and chat with my fellow classmates in the course that I have taken.

Degree: Counseling
Graduation Year: 2018

I will be starting my first class May 11, 2015, my scores are based off of my previous research of Capella University Graduate Programs. I can honestly say that the Advisor's are very helpful when getting you registered.
